The Ultimate Guide: How To Create NFTs on WAX

Let’s get started

Details of your first NFT Collection
  1. Add a collection photo. Pro tip: using an image that has a transparent background looks more appealing.
  2. Enter your collection name. Pick a meaningful name that describes your collection best. This one needs to be exactly 12 characters long.
  3. Enter a display name for your collection. On this, you have creative freedom. Pick whatever you want.
  4. Got a website, Twitter profile, or anything else that’s related to your collection? Make sure to let collectors know and fill out the “Website URL” input.
  5. What is your new collection all about? What do you want collectors to know? Enter a collection description.
  6. Set a market fee. The percentage you enter here is what YOU will earn every time your NFTs in this collection sell on ANY WAX-powered secondary market.
  • img = Primary image of your NFT (Type: Image)
  • backimg = Secondary image of your NFT (Type: Image)
  • video = Displays your NFT in a video format (Type: IPFS)
  • audio = Displays your NFT in an audio format (Type: IPFS)
  1. Upload your file by clicking “Add an image”
IPFS Hash Example: Qmaaqz4cVoDZnKMAVEGEYrCvEEiq4vmnD5P7PvoWJ6ZTni
Templates will make your life easier. Try it.
*UPDATE: For mp4’s to work you must create an “IPFS” attribute for your schema, along with a secondary Image attribute as well. If you don’t have both an IPFS & 2nd image attribute filled in, the mp4 will not show.
